A grand jury is to be empanelled in the state of New Jersey to hear the allegations against Jamaican entertainer Flippa Mogla.




However, a spokesman for the New Jersey Attorney General’s office says no time frame has been set for the grand jury hearings.



The New Jersey State Police reported last week that Flippa, whose real name is Andrew Davis, was the leader of an international drug trafficking and money laundering ring that operated between Jamaica, New Jersey and California.



He was arrested in California in September and extradited to New Jersey earlier this month when he was charged.



Eight others, including his brother Kemar Davis, were arrested in March this year after a two-and-a-half year probe that New Jersey investigators code-named ‘Operation Next Day Air’.



Flippa was offered bail in the sum of US$500,000, but the spokesman for the Attorney General’s office says the entertainer remains in custody.
